Holy Werewolf, Batman!!

For those of you that know me, you know that I am a lover of the Twilight Saga. Loved the books. Loved the first movie. LOVE New Moon!!
Tanner and I went to see it Saturday in KC and I was beyond excited to see it. I couldn't wait until I had another opportunity to see it in the theater. Today, I get that opportunity... with some of my mom friends! When we saw it in KC, the theater had a pretty even mix of young girls and older moms. I, in no way, felt out of place. In fact, I may have been one of the younger moms there.
I loved the movie. It had been such a long time since I'd read the book that I'd forgotten several of the details of the story, which was probably a good thing, that way I wasn't too critical of the things they did differently for the movie. I loved Mike and Jessica in the movie. They had some really cute, funny lines. Mike's character was a hoot and I loved the banter between him and Jacob. But let me say, throughout the book series, I was wholeheartedly on Team Edward. No swaying over to Team Jacob whatsoever. Even after Twilight came out in the theater, still my loyalty was for the vampire. Then I sat in the theater and watched Taylor Lautner portray Jacob... I do have to admit that my loyalty was swayed for a good hour and a half. Mercy. But then.... there was the last 30 seconds of the movie. Oh. My. Gosh. If ever there was a scene in a movie that screamed there would be more to follow, that, my friends, was it! I'm pretty sure my mouth hung open for a good 5 seconds before I realized where I was and that I was not Bella and Edward was not..... Well, you'll just have to watch it to really get it.
I'm off to see the love triangle on the big screen again. Can. Not. Wait!

Actually Writing... with a pen

I'm a way faster typer than I am a writer. I kind of gave up on "traditional" journaling because it just takes so darn long to do it. Blogging is a much faster way to keep up with stuff. And Twitter/Facebook is just lightning fast compared to actually getting a pen and paper.

However, I'm going back to the traditional paper and pen journaling for a while. I haven't actually started, but I'm going to. I really am. Not everything will be sent to the paper journal, but I'm starting it for a specific subject. I'll eventually put it all online, but for now, I have to actually pick up a pen and write. Should be fun. :)

All is well in the Langham house. We had a great Halloween. We went to a few houses to Trick-or-Treat, but not many people were home. Somehow, even though we didn't get to as many houses as last year, we ended up with WAY more candy. I'm still rather perplexed about that. It could be that I bought four bags of chocolate at Target the day before Halloween. Because I wanted it. That could be the reason for all the candy. But I'm not totally sure. Rachel and Katie were cheerleaders and Porter recycled his lion costume from last year. Tanner stayed at our house and passed out candy with her tie-dyed hair. The kids ended the night by going to Grandma Lynn's to spend the night. G'ma did it up something special with her costume. I'm not sure how I didn't get a picture of that, but she had on a metallic green mullet wig, freckels painted on her cheeks, and a set of those rotten looking teeth. Real nice, my friends. Real nice. Porter was a little bit leary of her at first, but got past it pretty quickly.

I will update with pictures soon. The little picture uploader thing doesn't like me this morning and I have to move on with other items on my to do list before I feel completely unproductive for the day.
